Turley Juvenile Zinfandel is the producer’s entry level wine and represents a composite blend of young vine grapes - aged between 6 and 25 years old - that have been replanted in old vine sites. Possessing less concentration than some of the estate's top wines, Turley Juvenile remains to be an excellent example of this variety and is only released in small quantities of around 1000 cases per year. Vibrant and juicy in character, the nose reveals focused fruit driven aromas of raspberry, red cherry, dried fruit, violet and coffee. The palate is similarly expressive and packed with rich, ripe fruit flavours, white pepper and spice. Round, full and flavoursome on this finish, this wine would pair well with hearty, red meat dishes.£3.33 per 100.00ml
